Waller’s Second Hair Transplant (Case Study)

Native Colorado resident Waller shows off the results of his hair transplant procedure at Modena Hair Institute and says: “I feel 10 years younger.”  Waller is owner of a large welding company in the Southwest had 2,100 hair grafts transplanted into his balding crown. 

It was Waller’s (40 yrs old) second hair transplant in the last five years after he started losing his hair when he was just 18. Waller said: “I am so pleased with the results and I do feel 10 years younger. I had significant baldness around my crown and this new procedure has filled in all those gaps.”

“My first procedure was around the front of my scalp and hairline. I started losing my hair at a very early age and would be as bald as my dad now, if I had not received this help.”

“As a professional investor and welder, I am acutely aware of the importance of having great hair and looking good and I’m so pleased that the expertise is there to make a real difference to the lives of men who are losing their hair. It can be heart-breaking and shatter your self-esteem.” 

Waller had his most recent procedure at Modena Hair Institute in Las Vegas with our double board certified doctor Dr. Amir Yazdan. He had the same follicular unit extraction (FUE) method used by previous celebrities where grafts are removed individually from the back of the scalp and transplanted into the balding area.  

Waller had his first hair transplant procedure five years ago – 2,500 grafts in the front of his scalp.  

After finding success and fame, he decided to have a second procedure just prior to his 40th birthday – this time focusing further back, around his crown and mid-scalp area. 

He explains: “It was fun wearing toupees for a time because they looked amazing but they are not a long-term solution. You damage your hair glueing them on and they can have embarrassing consequences and come off at the wrong times! I can remember one man almost getting the surprise of his life when it almost came off in his hand. I realized the only long-term solution to my problem was a hair transplant. I was really pleased with my first procedure, and decided soon after that I wanted a second procedure.

I chose Dr. Amir Yazdan because he had done such an amazing job with other colleagues of mine who left with gorgeously restored hairlines.

The truth is that I’ve had a hair transplant and I’m very happy to make that clear. I have posed up now for pictures because all the lovely new hair has grown back.

Dr. Amir Yazdan treats lots of celebrities at Modena Hair Institute – many of whom prefer not to go public. Dr. Yazdan said: “Hair transplants have never been more popular – particularly amongst celebrities who need to look good to stay in the public eye. You can completely change your appearance for the same cost as upgrading your car. Waller was a joy to work with and has had a great result around his crown. He still has a good covering of donor hair and could possibly benefit from a further procedure down the line if likes.”

What is Hairline Lowering Surgery?

While styling can help cover some of the surface area on the temple, the appearance of a large forehead can be a source of anxiety for many people. Having a hairline proportional to one’s facial features creates the most aesthetically pleasing and symmetrical appearance. Conversely, having an excessively broad forehead or a disproportionately high hairline can take a toll on one’s self-esteem.

Several reasons can cause a large forehead or a receding hairline, including heredity, hair loss, or prior surgery. However, the good news is that this condition can be addressed with a procedure commonly known as hairline lowering surgery. 

Guide to Hairline Lowering Surgery 

Hairline lowering surgery is typically performed with local anesthesia and intravenous sedation, and involves making an incision along the hairline and advancing it, lowering it by as much as 1.5 inches or more in a single procedure, removing the excessively high forehead skin. 

The beauty of hairline lowering is in its unique and personal applicability. A new hairline will be tailored to the patient’s preferences and is often wavy to mimic a natural hairline.

The incisions are made in such a manner so that hair regrows through and in front of the eventual hairline scar making it virtually undetectable. 

Am I a Good Candidate?

Most men and women with a high hairline and good skin elasticity can potentially be candidates for hairline lowering procedures. Since general anesthesia is required to complete this surgery, patients must be in good overall health to avoid complications. Individuals who have difficulties with abnormal scarring and wound healing may be encouraged to consider other options. The only way to find out if you are a candidate for forehead reduction surgery is to schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Amir Yazdan. During your appointment, your surgeon will perform a full medical evaluation, examine your hairline, discuss your concerns, and determine whether hairline lowering is the best option for your needs.

The Most Advanced Hair Transplant in Southern California

State-of-the-art hair transplantation relies on surgeons and technicians who are highly skilled, experienced and meticulously trained. This is a vital part of any hair transplant process and often overlooked by potential patients doing their research.
Our team at Modena Hair Institute has over 25 years of combined experience only in hair transplantation. Many plastic surgeons, while skilled, may do hair transplants a couple days per month to supplement income. They may do hair one day and then breast augmentation or liposuction the others. This results in a staff that lacks the experience and the regular practice to keep their skills sharp and honed.
The end result is technicians who cut the donor tissue up inefficiently, transecting hair follicles and wasting valuable donor hair.
This produces results that are sub-par and often lacking in density. In contrast, Dr. Amir Yazdan and his entire Southern California staff are passionate about hair and only do hair transplants each and every day at their Newport Beach and Beverly Hills clinics.
Over the years Dr. Yazdan has found that patients were misinformed and even mistreated at other clinics. That is why he formulated and distributed an official Consumer Alert document that clearly explains to consumers their rights, and to give them an idea of what to expect from a hair provider.
